In 2005, Cormac McCarthy's novel, No Country for Old Men, was published to wide acclaim, and in 2007, Ethan and Joel Coen brought their adaptation of McCarthy's novel to the screen. The film earned praise from critics worldwide and was honored with four Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
In No Country for Old Men: From Novel to Film, scholars offer varied approaches to both the novel and the award-winning film. Beginning with several essays dedicated entirely to the novel and its place within the McCarthy canon, the anthology offers subsequent essays focusing on the film, the adaptation process, and the Coen Brothers more broadly. The book also features an interview with the Coen brothers' long-time cinematographer Roger Deakins. This entertaining and enriching book for readers interested in the Coen Brothers' films and in McCarthy's fiction is an important contribution to both literature and film studies.

A one-stop learning opportunity, this comprehensive, enlightening, cohesive compilation covers a range of topics. ... Recommended. (CHOICE, March 2010)
These essays are engagingly written―demonstrating that criticism centering on the author's perceived intention is alive and well, and perhaps even reasserting itself in defiance of Roland Barthe's claim that the 'author' as a critical entity no longer exists. No Country for Old Men: From Novel to Film offers a valuable resource―not only to students of McCarthy's novels and their adaptations but also for those interested in modern reconstructions of the Western genre. I recommend it as a thoroughly entertaining read. (Literature/ Film Quarterly, January 2010)
